“He’s gonna come out and fight hard, or come out and try to play a chess game. You can’t play chess with me.”
Last night, fans who watched the replay of Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz were rewarded with a bonus edition of 24/7 chronicling the aftermath of the fight’s controversy. They start at the weigh-in through the post-fight press conference. This one also features comments from the fighters, referee Joe Cortez and others from the Nevada Athletic Commission. It’s good to see HBO has taken notes from Showtime’s Fight Camp 360; this is the first time HBO has shown post-fight footage, in line with Fight Camp’s post-fight episode with Pacquiao vs. Mosley. I hope both networks keep this going and up the ante. For those who haven’t seen the fight in its entirety, that’s included in this episode.
